Brendan Rodgers has broken his silence on the transfer this week which seen his club Leicester help bolster the Ibrox squad for the coming season.
Leicester outcast Andy King signed for Steven Gerrard’s men this week in a move which raised a few eyebrows considering who the manager of Leicester is.
The double treble winning former Celtic manager is at the helm at the King Power which led many to believe he had a hand in the transfer. Not according to the man himself who had washed his hands of Andy some time ago, so much so he didn’t even know he was gone.
“I wasn’t aware of it until he was having his medical.” Rodgers told SunSport.
“It was just something that happened very quickly.
“I came in on Wednesday morning and we were making our final preparations for training and I was told he was up in Glasgow having his medical.
“It’s something where the club have afforded him that respect to choose where it is he wants to go.
“Of course, I had no say in it really. He’s a senior player here, he’s needing to go out and get games and play so he’s taken that opportunity to go there.”
Rodgers is free to do what he wants with any of his players but it was a surprise during the week. It appears the ex-Celtic manager has left the club to deal with the player.
Not that it’s a big deal in the grand scheme of things. This is a guy who was offered out to our rivals and they signed him straight away without a second thought. While we want Celtic to be more proactive in the transfer market, we shouldn’t be jumping on transfers just because an agent chaps the door.
